ThE MISSION 10 The buffet of good eating now available at the newest of newfangled Mission district restaurants is enough to cause ordering paralysis. What to choose? Here’s our short list. 1 Pretzel at St. Vincent Soft and doughy, warm and salty—delicious. 2 Fish curry at Gajalee Made with coconut milk and plenty of spice. Order the spongy kal appam bread for sopping. 3 Chocolate babka at Wise Sons Everyone talks pastrami here, but this babka is another kind of art. 4 Gnocchi with Bolognese at Mozzeria If you’re looking for a hearty, meaty carbo-load, this is it. 5 Spicy Italian sausage from Pig & Pie Topped with guanciale-braised greens (for health). 6 Shiitake dumplings at Namu Gaji Finally, something to make up for the Mission’s lack of Asian-food comforts. 7 Carrots at Local’s Corner Roasted baby carrots with a swipe of yogurt and dill. Basic but brilliant. 8 Cube cakes at Craftsman & Wolves Four-star cake craftsmanship. Get the one with chocolate, caramel, and Viet-namese cinnamon with crunchy little bits at the bottom. 9 Mac ‘n’ cheese at West of Pecos A fine version of this classic dish topped with fire-roasted green chilies. 10 Cinnamon crunchy toast with vanilla ice cream at Mission Bowling Club Because after a heart-pumping bowling workout, you deserve it.
